    If I have turmeric powder, how much should I use. Also, could this be taken daily to boost immunities and help with digestion?

    I've never seen regular turmeric in it's raw form. I always buy organic in ground form. Is real raw turmeric sold here on Thrive? Perhaps "organic"? I will have to look....

    Is there a substitute for the lemon juice? I am very allergic to citrus, lemons especially, but all citrus makes me break out with eczema. Why do so many tonics, good for you elixirs and juice blends have citrus in them? I am sure I am not the only one with citrus allergies.
